Osama bin Laden was killed
Americans were thrilled
The terrorist leader was dead
The end to terrorism is ahead.
Egyptians worked as one
A revolution had begun
To free the country of corrupt authority
Was their number one priority.
Disaster struck Japan
Leaving citizens without a plan
A tsunami followed by an earthquake
A lot of lives it had to take.
North Korea, the communist nation
Is in mourning and devastation
Over the death of their leader, Kim Jong-Il
Even though he took away their free will
And unfair laws he had instilled.
Two thousand and eleven was a great year
The arrival of the two thousand and twelve is near
Let us hope it is just as great
And wait for it to be decided by fate.
